"Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." - Greeting spoken by United States astronaut Neil A. Armstrong at 6:00 P.M. EST from the moon as Apollo 11 Eagle Lunar Module landed on the moon on July 20, 1969.

Astronaut Neil Armstrong on the Moon

As Armstrong set foot on the lunar surface at 10:56 PM, he said, "That's one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind."

On the second mission to the Moon [Apollo 12] on October 27, 1969, Commander Charles "Pete" Conrad stepped off the Lunar Module and stated "Whoopee! Man, that may have been a small one for Neil, but that's a long one for me!"
